The Boston Graduate Studies Forum is an event unlike any other, designed for Young Professionals considering an MBA or Graduate Degree. Whether you’re a high-achiever looking to change careers, a college student planning for the future, or a professional ready to take your career to the next level, our Forum will be packed with information, resources, and speakers to empower you to plan the right path for your studies.
A free event unlike your other options in Boston, the Boston Graduate Studies Forum was designed after polling our community on what they want included in these events, and how we can make the process easier. This event will provide you with information about a graduate degree’s value, leading schools, test prep, and financing your degree. You’ll make critical connections with representatives, alumnae, and students of top business schools in the Greater Boston area— all while receiving unmatched support from the Boston Young Professionals Association.
